Don CeSar Hotel
The Don CeSar Hotel is Florida's "Pink Palace," and one of the premier historic resorts in the world.
Built in by Thomas Rowe 1928 to resemble a Mediterranean-style castle, Don CeSar became a playground for the rich and famous, and continued to flourish through the Great Depression.
After Rowe's death in 1942, the hotel languished until purchased by the Army. The hotel was converted into a military hospital, used as a U.S. Air Force convalescent center, and used as a Veterans Administrative Regional Office.
Then, after a group of citizens formed a "Save the Don" committee and began to search for an investor to refurbish the hotel, William Bowman purchased the Don CeSar in 1972 and reopened it as a hotel in 1973.
Today, the Don CeSar features stunning beach views. The hotel has 277 luxurious rooms including 36 suites, a 11,000-square-foot spa, a full service salon, a rooftop garden, the award-winning Maritana Grille for formal dining and the Sea Porch for casual dining.
